Was the “Gossip Girl” starlet overwhelmed at being in the presence of the music icon and her fashionista daughter? Apparently not. Momsen told “Access Hollywood” that the pair were hands-on and totally professional during the photo shoot. “Lola was here all day and she helped style the shoot and I worked with her to put the outfits together. She’s a sweetheart,” said Taylor, adding, “Madonna came a little bit later and she’s totally awesome. She’s very down to earth for all her success so that was … it was good to see that.”

Keeping tabs on the Material World, our favorite 13-year-old blogger posted another amusing entry this week, entitled “Lola’s Summer Adventures.” As well as recounting her embarrassment at having her mother dance next to her at a Jay-Z concert — “My mom was dancing the entire time which is LOL now that I think about it, but in the moment I was just like, ‘mom… no… please no.'” — and confessing that she finds “Twilight” hunk Kellan Lutz hot — “That boy is Gorgeous and now I’m going to shut the hell up.” — Lola also shared her excitement over the upcoming fashion line.

“OK may I just say, not to brag or anything, but it’s pretty awesome and I do like the clothes a lot,” wrote Lola, adding, “I’m not the designer of the line but my mom and I inspired it and do the styling and the putting together, staying on trend, yadayadayaaaahh.”

Showing her talent for marketing, the tween went on to sell the collection like a professional. “No but for rizzle, it’s a great line and if you guys like it that is FABNOSITY. It’s cool because it’s not only rock chick, there are also some boho items, skater, and some great ’80s pieces as well. So please check the pieces out online or in stores and I really hope you all like it.”

The collection hits Macy’s stores August 3, 2010.

Style Weekly : Celebs Heart ‘Hippie Style’

mischa_hippie_1

Hippies were all about peace and love in the 1970s. They were fun-loving, war-hating, drug dealing sweethearts that eventually became CEOs of the major corporations that they despised. Somewhere in the magic of the 70s, hippies developed their own brand of fashion. It was a convenience, easy style that still inspires two generations later.

If you weren’t around in the 70s, you may only be relying on old photos, television, or other people’s memories to understand hippie fashion. Comfort was the primary emphasis for hippie fashion. They weren’t interested in very structured looks. Their clothing and appearance was very free-flowing and open. Of course, hippies were also counter-culture. They sought to do what was different from mainstream society. Hippies would never have worn a suit and tie. They would never cut their hair. They were peaceful, but dogmatic rebels.

Women wear bell bottom jeans with ironed on patches. If you want to look more feminine, wear a long, flowing dress, or a peasant skirt. Hippie women loved bohemian clothes, especially the peasant blouses and skirts with printed designs on them. Sometimes, hippies wore mini-skirts or mini-dresses.

Hippie women looked similar to men with long, straight hair. They would add freshly picked flowers to their hair. Some hippie women would take several daisies, or similar flowers, are string them together, creating a band. They would then wear the flower band around their hair. Fabric head bands were also popular, along with head scarves.

Hippies always wore sandals or flip flops whenever possible, and in the winter, they wore boots. Women wore boots also, with their dresses. Women never wore high heels. Make sure you wear the flattest shoes possible to carry off this look. Always get into the easy-going spirit whenever you dress like a hippie, because that’s the most important part of the equation.
